|Callicarpa acuminata 'Woodlanders'|
so: wholesale source (Nurseries Caroliniana)
|Callicarpa americana 'Bok Tower' (10/00)|
bt: later flowering than species typical - also later fruiting as a result
or: Jonathan Shaw of Bok Tower Gardens selected from Poly Co. FL USA
in: Woodlanders Nur. Aiken SC USA 2000
|Callicarpa americana 'Lactea'|
|Callicarpa americana 'Russell Montgomery'|
eval: said be a better clone of 'Lactea' type
li: Dirr, M.A. 1998. Man. Woody Land. Plts. Stipes Publ. p. 160
mottled cream to white, 15-20% of surface. Not a bold or bright
variegation. No reversions observed in 3 ft. plant.
or: Laurence Hatch found as sport in Raleigh NC nursery 2001
eval: not a very bold nor commercially promising clone. It may have use for breeding or future selection.
|Callicarpa bodinieri var. giraldii (Rehd.) Rehd. (C. giraldiana Schneid.)|
glabrous above, glandular and somewhat downy below - var.
bodinieri is pubescent on both surfaces.
infl: less pubescent tha var. bodinieri.
id: W.J. Bean says plants in Britain under C. giraldiana are often closer to var. bodinieri in their vestiture.
aw: RHS FCC 1924
|Callicarpa bodinieri 'Profusion'|
to purple tinged new growth, semi-showy at best.
afc: purplish, sometimes a bit showy.
fc: light pink - these are so numerous they are somewhat showy - but it is no Spiraea to be sure!
frq: 30-40 fruit per infructescence (cluster) - more than typical. Heavy fruit set occurs on younger plants too.
eval: this is the most widely cultivated clone of the species and perhaps the mostly widely sold cultivar of all.
prop: said to come mostly true from seed - this is of course not recommended.
|Callicarpa dichotoma f. albifructa T. Yamazaki ('Albescens', 'Albofructus')|
white, unfortunately browning with maturity
ns: this is the correct name for the white-fruited form.
|Callicarpa dichotoma 'Early Amethyst'|
ht: 3-4 ft. tall x 4 ft. wide
frc: glossy violet-purple
frq: more fruitful than species typical
or: Arnold Arboretum
so: wholesale source (Western Maine Nurseries)
|Callicarpa dichotoma 'Issai'|
ft. - shorter than some
ha: more compact
frq: fruitful and showy, even on young plants, a superior clone overall.
|Callicarpa dichotoma 'Spring Gold' (5/02)|
golden yellow, later more green
in, wholesale source: Nurseries Caroliniana (online catalog 2002)
|Callicarpa japonica var. angustata Rehd.|
than var. japonica
lw: 2/5 - 1 1/5 in. wide - narrower blades than var. japonica
geo: China - typical var. japonica is mostly found in Japan.
|Callicarpa japonica 'Heavy Berry'|
fruitful than typical
li: Dirr, M.A. 1998. Man. Woody Land. Plts. Stipes Publ. p. 159
|Callicarpa japonica 'Leucocarpa'|
smaller than species typical but not always a sharp difference.
fc: light pink
frc: white fruits - best effect when interplanted closely with darker-fruited variants.
lc: lighter green than purple-fruited variants
|Callicarpa japonica var. luxurians|
infructescences (fruit clusters) larger than var. japonica
ch: less cold hardy than var. japonica.
|Callicarpa japonica var. luxurians 'Lollypop'|
so: source (Camellia Forest)
|Callicarpa japonica var. taquetii|
narrower than species typical
frd: infructescences (fruit clusters) smaller than var. luxurians and var. japonica
|Callicarpa japonica 'Virginia'|
so: source (Plant Development
